The-Bull-of-the-Woods

He’s the bull of the woods,
he’s a man never still,
if you say that you can’t,
he will say that you will.
He’s the heart of the job,
he knows all that is known
about bringing in logs
from the pines to Madrone.

He works on the skidder,
he works on the truck.
the fact that their running
just cannot be luck.
The loader, the dozer,
the water truck too,
respond to his touch
and again run like new.

The Bull needs good men
who can work in the woods,
who can handle the logs
and deliver the goods.
Who will work with a saw
in the dust and the dirt,
who continue to work
though

they’re tired or they’re hurt.

While the bull is a man
that is hard, he is fair.
If a man needs a hand,
it’s the bull who is there.
Work and swear at the logs,
be a man as you should,
then you’ll know you have a friend
in The-Bull-of-the-Woods.
